AviationGlass & Technology (AGT) has presented a translucent mirror that can transform into a screen to display announcements when required. The AeroGlass Mirror is the result of a partnership with Oculus Technologies, which developed the software.
Integrated signs, lighting and LCD displays behind the AeroGlass Mirror enable its surface to appear like a normal mirror when switched off. A capacitive button, controlled centrally, allows the lighting to be switched on and off simply. AGT says the transparent mirrors are fully certified, and have passed all impact and flammability tests on both commercial and private aircraft.
“Meaningful innovation is our mantra when it comes to the creation of technical features,” said Jaap Wiersema, COO at AGT. “We partnered with Oculus Technologies to combine its expertise in content software with our technological know-how. The result is this ingenious mirror offering airlines an exciting and innovative new way to capture the attention of passengers on board.
“Potential applications comprise integrated screens in bulkheads or in lavatories for advertising and passenger announcements including ‘close the door’ and ‘return to seat’ signs. The possibilities are endless!”
AGT says AeroGlass is up to 50% thinner and 25% lighter than traditional polycarbonate products, yet highly robust as well as scratch and UV-resistant. AeroGlass Mirrors are available in any color and can be combined with integrated lighting.
